As someone considering your reconstructive breast surgery options, you probably wonder what your breasts will look and feel like after the procedure. Most women considering breast reconstruction after mastectomy want to know if their results will resemble their natural breasts, and how they can expect their reconstructed breasts to affect their appearance.
We encourage you to view our before & after gallery, which shows photos of our past patients who received breast reconstruction with various techniques.
The fact is, the results can vary from woman to woman; however, most of our breast reconstruction patients are very satisfied with the results of the procedure. While breast reconstruction won't provide exactly the same look, feel, shape or size of breasts you used to have, it will restore beautiful, natural-looking breasts that allow you to feel complete and feminine again.
It's important to discuss the expected results with an experienced reconstructive breast surgeon. Some of the things we may discuss with you are:
- Making sure the breasts are equal in size, shape and position after breast reconstruction. If only one breast is affected by breast cancer, you may need to bring the remaining breast into symmetry with the reconstructed breast. This symmetry is often accomplished with breast reduction, a breast lift or breast augmentation of the unaffected breast.
- Your reconstructed breast is unlikely to have sensation like your natural breasts did. Most breast reconstruction patients find they are still satisfied with having the breasts restored even though sensation is not.
- There are multiple reconstructive breast techniques for which you may be a good candidate. Our experienced plastic surgeons will make sure you know what those options are and what results will look like.
Our plastic surgeons and our team are excited to meet you during your initial consultation, and to help you decide if reconstructive breast surgery can restore your confidence and positive feelings about your breasts and body.
